Book Review: “Calculated Risks,” by Seanan McGuire

Hello all! Is this what vacation feels like?! I forgot the weird exhilaration of being off from work for any length of time. I am, in a word, loving it. For this week, I plan on reviewing so many books that have been sitting in the "Read" pile, unreviewed and seemingly unloved. Calculated Risks, book … Continue reading Book Review: “Calculated Risks,” by Seanan McGuire

ARC Review: “Wild Sign,” by Patricia Briggs

I am, predictably, late - and shame on me too! Patricia Briggs is by far one of my favorite UA writers, and when I won Wild Sign from Netgalley and Berkley Publishing, I was thrilled! A little too thrilled, perhaps, since I finished Wild Sign at least a month before it came out. And now, … Continue reading ARC Review: “Wild Sign,” by Patricia Briggs

Book Review: “The Awakening,” by Nora Roberts

Happy weekend, all! I am taking this opportunity to some of my "backfill" from this year - man, am I behind! But, there has been so many amazing books out this year and last, is it any surprise my reading is outpacing my reviewing?!

Book Review: “The Queen’s Bargain,” by Anne Bishop

Happy Thursday, all! What a week, am I right?! I received the ARC for The Queen's Weapons recently, and since it comes out March 9, I know it was time to get off my butt and read book one.

Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Meant to Read In 2020 but Didn’t Get To

Happy Tuesday, all! I am happy to have a little bit of time tonight to focus on me, and I decided to contemplate my next steps. One really cool bookish meme I have been seeing is Top Ten Tuesday, and this week seems perfect. Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June … Continue reading Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Meant to Read In 2020 but Didn’t Get To

Book Review: “Dark Archives,” by Megan Rosenbloom

Wishing you all a contemplative and family-filled Martin Luther King Day. On the one hand, I am thrilled to have the day off from a stressful job, but on the other, a price was paid. Martin Luther King Jr. has all new significance in a year of division like this, and I hope you all … Continue reading Book Review: “Dark Archives,” by Megan Rosenbloom

ARC Review: “Ink and Shadows,” by Ellery Adams

Happy Sunday, all! I was so ridiculously excited to receive Ink and Shadows by Ellery Adams.

ARC Review: “A Curious Incident,” by Vicki Delany

HAPPY NEW YEAR! I think it is safe to say that we were all sick of 2020. There are no promises for 2021, and not much will change right away, but there is definitely a consensus that 2021 can't be *as bad* as 2020. One great thing that is happening this January is A Curious … Continue reading ARC Review: “A Curious Incident,” by Vicki Delany
